    "I Was Born Yesterday" Lyrics

    The Divine Comedy

    I... I was born yesterday
    And I believe all that you say
    I have no choice
    I must obey you
    Is this the first or the second day
    Of the rest of my life
    Well hey
    Why should I care either way
    If what you say is true?

    Saturday morning, 18th of December
    I cannot remember

    The last time that I saw such a young ballerina
    In love with the loveless
    In tune with a tuneless old upright piano
    Standing en pointe
    Going through each position with gentle precision
    She measures each movement
    Her classical features and elegant waistline
    Are going to waste while she pleases her parents

    What if they die on the road to Rathmines
    Where a dog in two minds times his run to perfection
    An orphan at last,
    She'd be sick in the loo-bowl
    Then go to the funeral and cry by the graveside
    And then sleep with the first man she sees
    And she'd catch some disease
    Which she would give to her doctor
    She'd cook her own breakfast, and she'd cook his as well
    And both get on swell
    Even though he was married

    You are a part of me
    I am a part of you
    Why should I let you walk all over me?
    All over me
